New Features, New Events, and A BIG PARTY

Hello, fellow Republicans. Things have been going on and picking up at a heavy pace since Lincoln Day. The club has had a meeting at a new venue, and there are several new features that the Party is employing to better reach out and serve you, the people.

First, the party is now on Facebook. Facebook is one of the prime social networking sites. It is one of the most used applications by people age 35 and under for social and professional networking. If you have a facebook account, you can search for the Brown County GOP in groups, or you can go here and submit a request to join. Due to the possibility of spammers and such joining, it is a closed group. However, once you submit a request, odds are very good you will be approved. We have some members already. If you haven't joined yet, do it!

Also, Bill Herdmann's birthday is coming up. It will be a great event. Bill wants to raise money for worthy causes, and he is using his birthday to do it. We will be hosting a Birthday Party for Bill. Of course he says we have to raise money for a good cause. So all the proceeds will be given to the Christina Loehrke Scholarship and the Republican party. What a Grass Roots Guy! We will have an opportunity to Roast Bill and with the other entertainment we have planed you will not want to miss it. Cost is 85.00 per couple (get it Bills 85 lol) and 50.00 per person. The day is May 23, 2009 from 4pm til 10pm at the Lake Lorelei Clubhouse. Come one, come all. You can rsvp through contacting Mariah Votel or via Facebook.

And, of course, there has been the tea party phenomena. What do you think about the tea parties? Should we in Brown County plan one? Were you at a tea party? Feel free to interact via facebook or in the comments of the blog.
